AUTHOR BIO


Ann Omasta is a USA Today bestselling author. 

Ann’s Top Ten list of likes, dislikes, and oddities: 
  1. I despise whipped cream. There, I admitted it in writing. Let the ridiculing begin. 
  2. Even though I have lived as far south as Key Largo, Florida, and as far north as Maine, I landed in the middle. 
  3. If I don't make a conscious effort not to, I will drink nothing but tea morning, noon, and night. Hot tea, sweet tea, green tea––I love it all. 
  4. There doesn't seem to be much in life that is better than coming home to a couple of big dogs who are overjoyed to see me. My other family members usually show significantly less enthusiasm about my return. 
  5. Singing in my bestest, loudest voice does not make my family put on their happy faces. This includes the big, loving dogs referenced above. 
  6. Yes, I am aware that bestest is not a word. 
  7. Dorothy was right. There's no place like home. 
  8. All of the numerous bottles in my shower must be lined up with their labels facing out. It makes me feel a little like Julia Roberts' mean husband from the movie Sleeping with the Enemy, but I can't seem to control this particular quirk. 
  9. I love, love, love finding a great bargain! 
  10. Did I mention that I hate whipped cream? It makes my stomach churn to look at it, touch it, smell it, or even think about it. Great––now I'm thinking about it. Ick!

COCKY HERO CLUB



 

I've been reading a lot of these books based in authors world's recently in an effort to read more new to me authors. And I have found it awesome since they are set in world's I already enjoy. It gives me a good exposure to new authors while giving me more of the world I love.

I don't really know what about this book made me pick it up. I am normally pretty careful about the dead spouse thing. It's a hard tight rope to cross. But obviously something about this book called to me.

This story was good and I'm not sure if it's because my head is a mess right now but I completely missed that twist coming towards the end. I really thought it was going a completely different direction.

Oliver's history as a heartless hunk was completely unfounded when it came to his feelings for Violet. In fact I'm so glad that we didn't get too much of his "before" character because I really liked his after and I have a feeling I might have felt differently if I'd seen him as the heartless hunk.

Violet was really well written. She was in the perfect place to meet Oliver. Even if they both went into their arrangement with different ideas of where it was all going to go. She didn't let her feelings on what she thought she should be feeling dictate her thoughts or actions and I liked her.

The writing felt a little formal and some of the word choices made me feel like I was reading something more high brow than anticipated. The book was the perfect length and I'm intrigued enough to go check out the book that was alluded to through out this one.

COCKY HERO CLUB





 

I am slightly obsessed with sports romances and basketball is the major sport in our household. And having been enjoying the cocky hero world I was really keen to read this book. Because all these different worlds have been helping me discover some awesome new to me authors.

Being as this was my first read from this author I wasn't really sure what to expect. And honestly, I don't think it was for me. I found the writing a little stilted and repetitive. I also questioned how much the author knew about basketball with some of her word choices.

In saying that she wasn't flat out wrong in her terminology it just wasn't how avid fans and / or players talk. But maybe that's just the American / Australian translation and that's how you all do say it and I've not picked it up.

Now as for the characters I just didn't connect with them. They both started off feeling a little shallow and I couldn't relate to them. I did warm up to them more in the last maybe quarter of the book but by then I just wanted to see what the twist was going to be.

Having said that it all could be me too. I'm having a terrible week and I've been a really cranky bitch. I didn't hate the story line. I think the premise was good and I got where both characters were coming from. Both Bentley and Jolene had their moments. But for me right now this just wasn't the book.




 

If the Broom Fits
by Sarah Sutton
Genre: YA Contemporary Romance
 




Halloween really is the worst.

Blaire’s got to be the only person on the planet who hates Halloween. At least the only person in her small town, which practically worships the holiday. Ugh. And it doesn’t help that her super-hot ex-boyfriend, Lucas, is determined to convince her otherwise by making her take part in “festive activities.” Apparently carving pumpkins and watching scary movies is going to magically change her mind about the holiday? Yeah, right.

But Blaire has never told anyone the truth of why she hates Halloween or the truth about why she broke up with Lucas. She’s definitely never told anyone about how much she second-guesses that decision. Being around him is so much harder than she thought, especially when it looks like he's starting to move on.

And when she gets a letter in the mail from someone who broke her heart, can Blaire overcome the negativity drowning her? Or will her bitterness and secrets push everyone she loves away?

Excerpt

“No,” said the bodyguard.
“But—”
“Miss, do you have any idea how many people try to get backstage by claiming they have some sort of relationship with Mr. Dillon?” Face a careful blank, the man in the slick black suit stared down at me. He had a point. I’d pushed through a crush of fans, getting my toes stomped on several times, along with taking an elbow to the kidney, just to talk to this guy. God only knew what it took to get near the star of the show.
“I’d imagine a lot,” I yelled back at him. Necessary given the volume of the music filling the space. “The difference here is I’m not lying.”
“But since everyone says that, you can see from my perspective how that’s not actually a point of difference.”
Adam Dillon, rock star extraordinaire, gyrated his slim denim-clad hips like an Alt-Rock Elvis on the nearby stage. He pouted and crooned about the woman who’d done him wrong. Me. That’s right, I was the big bad ex who’d broken him and woke him to the dangers of love. Or so the song said.
The song lied and then some.
According to the lyrics he was currently wailing, I’d ground his heart beneath my five-inch heels before blowing him a kiss goodbye. From memory, there’d been a lot of shouting, but no blowing of kisses. And having just kicked off the flats I wore for work, I’d been barefoot, my legs and back aching. No way had I been strutting around in stilettos. Home from a hard day at the hair salon, I’d returned to find Adam on the couch. The same place he’d been when I’d left for work approximately eleven hours earlier. The same place he’d been for what felt like months as I worked my ass off to pay the rent. That’s when all hell broke loose. However, it wasn’t the only issue that had caused our relationship to bomb. Nothing’s ever simple.
But back to the here and now. I grabbed the slip of paper out of my front pocket, holding it up for his perusal. “My name is Jill Schwartz. How many of those people claiming to know him have one of these?”
His eyes widened as he scanned the name on the check, before widening again at the amount. And fair enough too. I’d had a mild panic attack myself when it had first arrived. When Adam decided to make a statement, he didn’t bother with subtle. If only I could figure out what it all meant. If it meant anything at all, of course. And that question was what had brought me here tonight.

CONCEPTION

(The Wellingtons #4)

by Tessa Teevan  

Release Date: November 5th    

 

    

Blurb

It's the summer of 1980, and a sweltering heat wave plagues much of the South. To get over a recent breakup and find some much-needed cooling down, Amelia Halloway escapes the city to spend the next three months at her grandparent's secluded lake house. Even though she craves the isolation, it doesn't last long thanks to an irritatingly handsome intruder.

The man’s from across the lake; the cocky, arrogant, and completely irresistible Knox Wellington-- one who isn't used to hearing the word no. She's running; he's chasing, and it's one hell of a relay. Inevitably, as most Wellingtons do, he breaks down her barriers and raises her temperature higher than any heat index. They embark on a carefree, no strings affair that intensifies the flames of their passion with every passing day.

What's meant to be a summer fling turns into so much more, but even the most relentless inferno eventually burns out, leaving nothing but ashes and destruction in its wake.

Life may tear them apart, but even hundreds of miles away and months apart, Knox can't forget the beautiful brunette who set his soul on fire, consuming his every waking thought until he has to seek her out. When he returns, he's in for the surprise of his life.

About to face the ultimate test, Knox must decide... can he stand the heat?

LEFT FOR WILD 
by Harlow Rae 
Release date: October 22nd  

 
      
 
Blurb
Arrested. Wrongfully accused. Sentenced to ten years.
But the steel bars release me early.
After serving half of my time for a crime I didn’t commit, they grant me parole—with a very short leash. My second chance at freedom begins now, and I won’t waste it. I should’ve been paying more attention.

Ambushed. Captured. Stranded.
When I wake in the depths of a snowy forest, all seems lost. I’ve been left alone in the wilderness with zero means of escape. Until someone rouses beside me.
I recognize Blakely Cross instantly, yet she’s barely more than a stranger. Now she’s stuck with me in the worst possible place, as collateral damage.
Blakely blames me, and rightfully so. This entire situation is my fault. Our destinies are inadvertently twisted together by forces far larger than us. Whether she hates me or not, we need each other to stay alive.

Cope. Adapt. Persevere.  
They tossed us out to be buried, but underestimated our determination. The bond we’re building will overcome the harshest conditions.

And we’re not willing to surrender.

Title: One Night
Author: J. Akridge
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 21, 2020


 
BLURB

Tessa 

I’m 21. One-night stands are supposed to be normal at this age right? Go to a bar, pick a hot guy, have a little fun and then you run. Or at least that’s what I thought, until my first and only one-night stand ended up being the night I got knocked up by a stranger I had never laid eyes on before. Sure, he was the perfect guy for the job. He was sexy in the way that attracted every female within 100 yards of him. His voice was smooth, and he knew exactly what to say to get into my panties, clearly. Eye roll. 

I wasn’t on birth control. Now I’ve peed on two sticks and they both say the same thing. Those two little lines have changed my future forever. You want to know what the worst part is? I have no idea what the name of the father is. 

Kyle 

I’m a bachelor. I never sleep with the same woman twice, I like variety. But when she walks into the bar, she takes my attention immediately. When she agrees to leave with me, I've hit the jackpot. Then I run into her in my sister's office, the last place I expected to see her. I never thought I'd see her again. 

Except this time, she has something to tell me. Something that will change my world forever. Our one night together, turned out to be so much more.
